Our Mission, Our Vision
We'd love to get to know you better. Take a moment to say hi to the community in the comments.
Where are you from?
The mean, foreboding streets of El Cerrito, California.
How old are you?
Here's a hint: my parents likely got freaky to ABBA or Leo Sayer or some-such.
What do you do for work?
I work part-time at a consulting firm - digital archiving, helping transition to paperless, general assistance. In my off-time, I'm a writer [here], [here], an editor [here], and a photographer [here].
A writer, eh? Pro-Oxford comma or anti-Oxford comma?
Oxford comma all the way. Anything else is, quite frankly, uncivilized, petty, spiteful, and just plain wrong.
What was your first job?
First true job? Besides mowing lawns for pocket change? I was in the Army from 1997 to 2001. I was discharged on June 4, 2001, just three months before the Twin Towers fell.
What branch were you...
I said I was in the Army!
No, sorry, my bad. What career branch in the Army?
I was Adjutant General -- a.k.a.: pencil-pusher, desk jockey, Chairborne Ranger. Generally a 9-5, office, customer-service gig.
In addition, I did a little modeling work. I modeled gas masks. No, I don't have any thirst-trap photos of me modeling a gas mask. Sorry.
Otherwise, a fairly uneventful four peacetime years, I suppose -- outside of screwing up my back and knees and kicking off a drinking career.
On to the important stuff. Who is your squad?
